The project, which will add 51,000 square feet of space and renovate 14,000 square feet, included the construction of a six-story patient care building, five new operating rooms and an expanded outpatient radiology center.
On Monday, the hospital received a $108 million tax-free bond from the Westchester County Local Development Corporation to fund the project.
Construction is expected to begin in November and take two year to complete. Here's a brief rundown of the work that's being done:
- A six-story patient care building that will house two medical/surgical floors, family waiting rooms, and 24 new private patient rooms. With a total of 114 private patient rooms, the percentage of private rooms will double. Private rooms address infection and privacy issues and are more convenient for family members.
- Five new modern operating room suites, along with new pre-op and recovery areas. Featuring state-of-the-art lighting, operating tables, ceiling-mounted equipment, and minimally invasive technology, these new operating rooms will maximize space and minimize turnaround time between procedures.
- An expanded outpatient radiology center will feature new waiting rooms for patients and family members, ensuring patient comfort and privacy.
- A new covered front entrance and lobby, with a glass atrium and a new café, will improve traffic flow and provide patients and visitors with greater comfort and convenience during arrivals and departures.
- Energy conservation strategies and sustainable technology that will reduce costs while being socially responsible.
